For visionary partners
The Smithsonian is known for telling bold stories of human endeavor and resilience that spark hope and inspiration for millions of people around the world. To celebrate its 175th anniversary, the Smithsonian presents a new exhibition that invites every American to consider: What comes next? FUTURES showcases the art, ideas, trends, and tech shaping our collective tomorrows and will inspire you to see yourself as a participant, not a passenger, in shaping a better world.
We’re looking for visionary partners ready to tackle humanity’s next chapter. If you’re interested in exploring ways to support FUTURES and the Arts + Industries Building, including through education and public programs, please reach out.
